Divorce Law in 1933 relating to 5th section (18 & 19?)
« on: Saturday 26 August 17 16:52 BST (UK) »
I have a 'Register of Corrected Entries' where a divorce is noted on a previous marriage record at the bottom of which it states: "The above insertion is made under the direction of the Registrar General in terms of the 5th section of the Act 18 & 19 Vict c.29)

Does anyone know what this refers to in the Act (presumably Divorce Act around 1933) as I've had no look finding it online. Also not sure of the word Vict above. I've attached a small snip.

Thanks as always for help.

Acts of queen Victoria's reign.

18 and 19 c29 refers to the registration of births marriages and deaths (Scotland) act 1855,
I am assuning this is an act that permits the alteration of a registration.

Incidentally I just googled.       18 19 vict. 29      And it was the second result on the list.

But google is very clever,  or devious,  it remembers every search you have ever made and offers you results according to your search history, which may be good or bad news :) :)

Thanks for that though  I've no idea what it means. I expected the references to be the reason for the divorce but not so from the look of it.

I know I'm late to the party but I have just come across this correction on a marriage entry too. I know the couple separated - she left him and went to Canada too - and many years later the entry was corrected at his instance I assume so he could remarry.

Section 2: Objections to marriage
9. Section 5 of the 1977 Act currently provides for situations where there is an objection to
a marriage proceeding. Section 5(4) lists the legal impediments to a marriage. These include
... or where one or both parties are not domiciled in Scotland and marriage would be void according to the law of the party‘s domicile.
